2016 Estate Petit Verdot
Review Of Washington Wines:
Inky purple-crimson colored, this wine emits intoxicating aromas of wild blackberries, mountain huckleberries, black cherries, crushed black roses, sweet tobacco, cedar, black violets and oriental incense. Like the aromatics, the flavors are dramatic, with thick black and blue fruits that are infused with black licorice, dark cocoa, espresso and black loam minerals. The saturation continues on the back with sensations of macerated berries, roasted walnuts, toffee, mocha and pulverized charcoal. The alcohol is on the edge at 15.2%, but is held in check by ripe fruit acids and lanolin on the lingering, again saturated, ripe tannin finish. 19/20 points.
